CBCA partners with Echelon Productions

The CBCA is delighted to announce a partnership with Echelon Productions, operator of Perform! Educational Musicals.

Perform! Educational Musicals is a multi award-winning producer of educational theatre for primary schools. They have been touring for 18 years, using music, drama, story telling, and dance to educate children about CBCA Children’s Book Week, Cyber Safety, Science and Technology, Financial Literacy, and Fitness and Health.

“We are proud to be partnering with an organisation that brings quality educational productions into Primary Schools, exploring the CBCA Children’s Book Week themes and promoting literature and the joy of reading in an interactive, fun and engaging way,” said CBCA Chair, Professor Margot Hillel OAM.

Tobias Benn, Managing Director of Perform! Educational Musicals, believes the partnership will ensure that CBCA Children’s Book Week continues to inspire thousands of children and expand and grow as a featured highlight of the annual school calendar.

“Using theatre is a powerful means to capture the imagination of children and engage them directly with the magic of Australian literature, which is so critical in today’s digital age. A huge part of our success is the fact that when kids laugh, they engage and learn so much more willingly and enthusiastically.”

Perform! Educational Musicals will bring the 2018 CBCA Children’s Book Week theme Find Your Treasure to life in a new production titled Treasure Hunt!
